Using Highlighters to teach kids handwriting, such a great idea for Fine Motor skills
I use highlighter letters instead of "dot letters" for kiddos to trace, on advice of an occupational therapist. This blog is a really great resource for teaching handwriting and motor skills.
Highlighters to teach handwriting and cutting skills (better than dots or dashes) // I use this all the time for kids who need handwriting practice.
So many people make the mistake of using dots which just confuse the kid... MUCH better than dots or dashes. Highlighters to teach handwriting. This idea could also be used with D' Nelian handwriting or cursive on lined paper templates for older kids.
MUCH better than dots or dashes. Highlighters to teach handwriting. --LOVE this tip! I did it as a teacher now teach my kids their letters this way, along with Handwriting W/O Tears.
MUCH better than dots or dashes. Highlighters to teach handwriting! I learned this from my student teacher. I have students trace the highlighted letter, word, number but then I have them "try" to write it on their own next to it.
